Delicious Spicy Micheladas

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"A Mexican favorite, the michelada is a simple way to make a cheap Mexican beer into a delicious drink that will quickly become a party favorite. I recommend a cheap Mexican beer such as Modelo® or Tecate® for best taste and to stay true to the michelada concept. Best served at a Mexican food barbecue alongside fajitas, Mexican rice, guacamole, salsa, and so on with family and friends!"
